Name: Bonnie
Breed: Shelti Collie Cross
Age approx: 8 years
Bonnie came to us because her devoted elderly owner died and there was no one to look after her.
Bonnie is a very sweet natured pretty little girl and she has extremely soft fur. Bonnie's previous owner wasn't well enough to walk her for the last two years so she's only played in the garden but despite this she's not bad on the lead at all we have found.
Bonnie loves to play ball and loves her treats. At the moment she is a little timid but she is making good progress and coming out of herself and just being a very pleasant girl.
Bonnie can be homed with cats and dogs. All dogs have to meet to make sure they get on first.
And children 8+


Name: Tilly
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Cairn Cross 
Age approx: 5 years
Tilly came to us because of a marriage break up. Tilly is a lovely looking small girl and a  pale honey colour Tilly is initially a little nervous but soon gets to know you. She is friendly and will jump up on your lap for a cuddle.
She does also like to jump up on the seat you've just been in, as quick as a flash as we have found out. Which is very funny.
When we take Tilly in the exercise area she appears a little unsure and we think she may have spent more time inside. She also likes to be in her crate. So we are working on this and she's doing very well and her confidence is building nicely. She likes a ball and will sit nicely for you to throw it. Tilly travels well in the car and only barks a little when the car stops. We are a little unsure about what she's like with other dogs, again this is something we are looking into and all dogs have to meet to see how they get on.


Name: Skippy
Breed Lurcher Cross
Age approx:  9 years
Skippy lived in Spain with her owner and then sadly he died and she was bought back to this country to us to be re homed. And sadly that was last summer and Skippy is still with us. Skippy is a lovely girl and despite being on the mature side is very playful and still running fast after her toys. She plays beautifully with her toys and enjoys fetch.
Skippy will sit nicely for you and give you her paw and she will drop. She's very soft mouthed when taking a treat and will wait patiently for a toy to be thrown. Very obedient.
Skippy is happy with her own company, sometimes being left to enjoy her chosen toy that day all to herself. Throwing it in the air or just holding it in her mouth.
Skippy walks on a loose lead and will let you groom her from dawn to dusk.We would like Skippy to be the only pet. and children 8+ because she's a larger dog. Due to Skippy's age she can be available for long tern foster. We assist with all vets fees and our full back up

Name: Lily
Breed: Husky/Labrador Cross
Age approx: 7 years
Lily came to us because her owners house needed renovations and they were meant to come back for her after it was finished. But they decided they no longer wanted her ! So she came to us and is now one of our long term residents and we are not sure why. Lily is a beautiful girl and has striking 'Bowie' eyes. One blue and one brown.
She has a lovely friendly nature and when she comes out into the exercise area she always likes to have a really good roll on the grass and then a mad couple of minutes running round and round, and then shes ready to play.
She loves her toys especially a squeaky one and a raggy one . and plays fetch nicely.She is affectionate and really enjoys fuss and attention and a groom.
Lily will sit nicely and give her paw. She can do most of our agility course but not mastered the hoop yet. So  she's a clever girl.
We would like Lily to be the only pet and older children because she's a larger dog.


Name: Sammi
Breed: Boarder Collie Cross
Age approx: 5 years
Lovely little Sammi has been with us a few years now , one of our long term residents and unfortunately she keeps getting over looked.
She was bought on a social media site on a whim. No interview no home check no cooling off period !She's extremely pretty and she has a glossy coat. Sammi is initially very excited and bouncy when she comes out but after a very good run and play time she will settle. She's a clever energetic girl.
We think she would really  benefit from agility classes and be top girl.
She just needs a chance to shine and be in a home where she gets the attention she needs.
Sammi is a very friendly girl and enjoys lots of fuss. She loves being groomed and  playing with toys and enjoys playing fetch.
Sammi's not keen on cats but could be homed with a male dog. A secure fenced garden as well for this inquisitive little girl., and children aged 12+


Name: Biscuit
Breed: Jack Russel
Age approx:  3 Years
Biscuit came to us from a home where she was living as an out door dog with at least 5 others.
Biscuit came without a collar/lead and dirty. So it would be wonderful for Biscuit to experience life in a loving family home. Despite her tough start Biscuit has a delightful nature and a pleasure to be with. She is very content and always very excited to see you. Biscuit loves to jump up onto your lap at every opportunity and it goes with out saying that she loves a good tummy rub and will lay and have a tickle from anyone she takes a fancy to which is most and she will take treats gently from your hand. Biscuit also is very happy with her own company and will settle well and you hardly know she's there.
We would prefer Biscuit to be the only pet but she could possibly be homed with a male pending a meeting. Children 8+


Name: Tess
Breed: Rotweiler
Age approx: 7 years
Tess came to us because the couple who had her had got a new baby in the house and no longer had the time to give to Tess that she fully deserved, and sadly that was 6 years ago. So Tess has become a long term resident with us. Tess is 7 now and she would be available for long term foster care, you would have our full support and vets fees paid for. Tess is a lovely girl who likes to trot around the exercise area doing her own thing. She's quiet and calm and happy with her own company. But when you have a treat you will have Tess's full attention and she will sit nicely and take it very gently.
She will stay by your side and walk to heel. She's good on the lead and when we walk past the other dogs in their kennels she pays little attention to them preferring to  leisurely sniff. She's a lovely old girl just looking for a comfy bed to spend her twilight years. We recommend meeting Tess a couple of times for her to get to know you.
She could be homed with a male pending a meeting and older children, maybe teenagers


Name: Tia
Breed: Labrador/Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross
Age approx: 7 years
Tia's owners were evicted and she was living in unsuitable filthy conditions ! She's been with us a long time.But despite this awful start she's just a lovely friendly happy girl. She loves running round and round with a ball. And really is just as good as gold.
She's very playful and loves playing fetch and will keep bringing the ball back and dropping at your feet over and over which is a pleasure to see. She takes treats gently and just a great all rounder.
Once she's had a good play she loves nothing more than to lay stretched out on the grass with her legs behind her with a ball. Tia's not keen on cats but could be homed with a male pending a meeting and older children because she's quite strong. Maybe teenagers.


Name: Holly
Breed Sky Terrier/Yorkshire Terrier cross
Age approx:  9 months old
Holly's Elderly owner was disabled and struggled with Holly because she didn't get on with the cat.
Probably Holly just got a little playful because she was only a puppy and that may change in time under different circumstances.
Holly is a lovely little girl and very friendly. While she's been with us she's loved nothing more than to play with a tennis ball. She will chase it but she's equally happy to amuse herself throwing it in the air and rolling around with it, and for quite awhile. Good as gold. Holly loves a cuddle and also enjoys sitting on your knee. Holly will sit nicely for you and take her treats gently. She's good in the car.
Holly could be homed with another dog pending a meeting. We want to avoid cats . And she could be homed with children 5+


Name: Belle
Breed: Black Labrador
Age approx:  2 years
Belle's previous owners were working much longer hours and didn't have the time to devote to her she fully deserved. Belle is a very pretty petite Black Lab with a very glossy coat.
Belle appears to be very well behaved and will sit nicely for you and take treats very gently. She likes her tennis balls and loves to play and if you throw them not too high she can catch them in mid air. In our office she was as good as gold and settled well and laid at our feet when we were working. Belle also happily went in a crate while we dealt with another situation for a little while.Belle is good with other dogs .
She's not been around cats so unsure of that. Children 5+


Name: Star
Breed: Burmese Mountain dog Cross
Age approx: 4 years
Star's owners decided they didn't want her any more because they were having a baby and that was 4 years ago when star was a puppy and sadly she's still with us !  This incredibly well behaved  girl keeps getting over looked because of he size. She is stunning to look at and has a glossy thick coat and she enjoys being groomed.
She loves to run a round the paddock chasing a ball and when you go to throw the ball she bows down like a puppy and gets excited.
She's very intelligent and will sit give you her paw lay down and takes treat very gently from your hand. Star really loves a fuss and will press her body into you for more.
She's just like a big soft teddy bear a real gentle giant. We think Star could be homed with a male dog and older children purely because she's big


Name: Jessie
Breed: German Shepherd
Age approx: 10 years
Jessie is a lovely friendly old girl and we are currently looking for long term foster care for her.
She really deserves the comfort of a loving home for her to live out her twilight years. When she is in the exercise area she loves to roll in the grass and trot around having a sniff.
She recently went to the vets and had a bath and groom ( her spa day ) because she has very thick long hair.  And she thoroughly enjoyed it. She looked like she was grinning ear to ear.
Could you be that special person to give Jessie a home? long term foster would have full support from us including the vets fees.
Jessie's not keen on cats and small dogs and would be better homed in a house with older children. She's a smaller shepherd but still on quite big


Name: Pickles
Breed: Labrador Cross 
Age approx:    6 years
Pickles came to us because her devoted owner had a heart attack.
She's a super girl  and we are surprised she's still with us because she's so amiable and loving. Pickles is playful and loves chasing a ball. She will bring it back and drop it at your feet. She's knows how to sit and give her paw and will lay down when you tell her to.
Pickles takes great pleasure when she out in the grass  exercise area by laying flat on her belly with her legs stretched out behind her and a ball in between her paws . Lovely to see !Pickles could be homed with a male dog and children aged 5+


Name: Snoops
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age approx: 5 years
Snoops came to us because the couple who owned her said she was too boisterous with their young Children and being a young girl at the time it not surprising! We Usually advice 5+ with younger dogs.
That was 3 years ago. So sadly Snoops is one of our long term residents. It's such a shame because she has such a  friendly playful nature and just lovely to be with. She will give you lots of kisses and shows lots of affection to everyone she meets She will sit nicely for you and if you have a treat she's very funny because she almost lays down for it. Despite being a strong girl she takes treats incredibly gently from your hand. She loves her belly rubs and lots of fuss.
Just a lovely girl. We would like Snoops to be the only pet and older children purely because she's on the strong side


Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age approx: 10 years
Lovely Lola is a smaller Staffordshire Bull Terrier and she's been with us quite a while now.
She came from a house where she was being used for breeding and they no longer needed her.
When Lola is on the lead she calms down very quickly to walk nicely. She loves a cuddle and when she has her belly rubbed, she snorts like a little pig because she's just so happy. She loves to play games for her treats rather than play with toys. One of the ladies at the kennels has actually  taught Lola to take treats gently from her mouth. She is as soft as grease.
Lola is getting on now and she would be available for long term foster to live out her twilight years and we would assist with vets fees and you  would have our full support.
Could you be that special person ?  We would like to home Lola as the only pet and with older children because she's quite strong


Name: Summer
Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Age approx: 4 years
Summer started life in a puppy factory and the lady who bought her gave her up because her first dog didn't like her ! and so she came to us. Summer is a very distinctive looking girl.
She's actually the same breed as the dog in "Turner and Hooch" If you know the film you'll know what a lovely temperament these dogs have. When Summer is in the exercise area she will break into a little trot and then she will drop down and  roll and roll in the grass . Then she will attempt to sit on your lap if you're sitting on the ground.
All 70 kg of her ! She's extremely loving and will prod you with her paw for more fuss.
Summer could be available for long term foster with full veterinary support and help from us.
We would Summer to be rehomed as the only pet and with older children due to her size.


Name: Harley
Breed: Standard Poodle/German Shepherd cross
Age approx: -2 years


Name: Phoebe
Breed: Jack Russel
Age approx: 7 years
Phoebe's story is heartbreaking. Her owner had mental health problems and unfortunately Phoebe's scarred concave head is the result! So you won't be surprised to hear that Phoebe has some trust issues and on some occasions has nipped. Re- homing her isn't going to be easy. Phoebe to our delight has made progress. She has just started jumping onto the lap of one of the kennel ladies (this is only on Phoebe's terms though) and she comes into the office for treats and a run around to build her confidence. We are looking for a unique home situation for Phoebe. Maybe a home with a spare room and a stair gate, a quiet place and enclosed garden (no need for lengthy walks) Some one with time and patience and a good understanding of dogs.
We will be available to help at all times. She would need to be the only pet and a child free environment. Phoebe would be available for long term foster with all vets fees covered and full assistance from us.


Name: Ruby
Breed: German Shepherd
Age approx:  1 1/2 year  
Ruby's owners worked long hours and so sadly she spent a lot of time on her own in the garden attached to a running line. Not a good start at all for a young dog ! She also came to us with an infection in her stomach which has taken her 3 months to recover from and now she's doing well and happily she's gaining weight.
When Ruby is in the exercise area she loves the toys especially a squeaky one and plays with the balls and she can get two in her mouth.
But she needs encouragement and she does take herself off to the corner and sit alone, which is probably the result of being left alone for so long in her early days. She does come round though and she's learning quickly.
We feel Ruby would benefit from going to a home who has experience of the GSD and she would probably do better on her own, and older children.


Name: Hope
Breed: Husky
Age approx: 18 Months 
Hope came to us because her owners were being evicted from their home and their new home doesn't allow pets.
Hope is an incredibly pretty young girl and extremely  eye catching with a glossy coat. Hope comes from a home where there were 7 young children and another dog and the parents tell us she was lovely around all the children and the other dog.
We have found her to be a very good girl and just very sweet. Hope will sit nicely for you and give you her paw and take treats very gently from your hand.
Hope isn't too keen on cats.She could be homed with another dog pending a meeting. And children 5+


Name: Roxy
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age approx: 2 years old
Roxy loves people and is always excited to meet new ones and furiously wags her tail. She's an extremely happy young girl and very loyal. Roxy sits and gives her paw. Her  foster carers tell us that Roxy sits and waits for her food and won't have it until she's given the ok. That's good going for such a young girl. She adores her Kong toy/Chewy which keeps her amused for ages and she only chews that and not the furniture. Roxy gets on very well with the foster carers daugthers two Border Collies. Roxy's foster carers have spent a lot of time training her and she's well behaved. She could be homed with an older male. And she likes children. But a little older 5+. Currently in a foster home.


Name: Ellie
Breed Saluki
Age approx:   18 months
Ellie is an incredibly  striking looking young girl with Tri colour markings and semi long haired fur.
Ellie is currently in foster care with two male dogs who she gets on very well with and they play for long periods of time, which is just a joy to see. 
When out walking Ellie doesn't appear particularly interested in cats unlike her two male companions who would like to chase them.
Ellie is still very young and in her foster home she is active and very fun loving. Ellie's foster carer has a  young grandson and they both get on really well. Ellie has a wonderful friendly gentle nature and walks nicely on the lead.
Ellie could be homed with another dog pending a meeting and with children 5+. Currently in a foster home.


Name: Coral
Breed: Patterdale/Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross
Age approx: 6 months
Little Coral is a beautiful Brindle puppy. She's currently enjoying the company of several cats whilst in foster care and she loves them.  Coral has had her injections now and has been introduced to the rest of the family of 5 dogs and they are all getting on really well. An excellent start for her and giving her great socialization skills.
Her foster carers tell us that she is as good as gold and a very well behaved puppy who's enjoying her toys.
She would be able to go into a home with other dogs but would have to meet them and of course cats would be ok.
